The paper reviews the economic and development content of the various protocols signed by the Government of Sudan and the Sudan Peoples Liberation Movement over the period 20 July 2002 to 26 May 2004. It is proposed that these agreements should be understood in the context of the modern economic theory of civil wars. Under this theory economic factors are held to be the most important explanatory variables for the occurance of civil wars; however, resolution of such conflicts have to address the grievances expressed in the political discourse of armed movements. The paper argues that the most important economic and development challenges in post-conflict Sudan include increasing the investment rate; management of the expected surge in government expenditure; the role of the central bank in the context of a dual monetary system; and , establishing social safety nets.
